With the latest generation of SandForce controller, the Kingston SSDNow 200V+ 120GB has good performance for an SSD at its price point. It also has a well thought out upgrade kit, earning it the Bjorn3D Value Award.

Enermax Platimax Review reported at 08:23 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Overclock3D.Net
Article Quote:
Often when pushing the boundaries of one area in a PSU's design, another area will suffer. I've seen this situation in the past when manufacturers have tried desperately to improve voltage stability, but as a result cross-load results or maximum power output suffer. Thankfully though the Platimax doesn't appear to have this trait, and performs excellently in both the voltage stability and ripple testing. I would possibly even go as far as to say the Platimax has some of the most stable voltages of any PSU tested recently here at OC3D. Ripple suppression is also quite good, but once again slightly overshadowed by the MaxRevo..although not to the point where it should affect a purchasing decision.

G.Skill RipjawsZ F3-14900CL9Q-16GBZL Review reported at 08:22 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Over all we are very impressed with the feel, looks and by far the performance that the Ripjaws-Z has to offer for the money, other similar kits are priced around the £200 mark and spending the extra £60 to get those instead, is £60 that could otherwise go towards a faster CPU or GPU.

OCZ Octane Review reported at 08:20 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
The OCZ Octane cannot blow you away with its performance. It is inferior to the latest SandForce- and Marvell-based SSDs across most of real-life tests. The synthetic benchmarks provide the explanation: the Octane is too slow at random-address operations. The new firmware (version 1.13) has improved that parameter, yet not as much as to make the Octane drive competitive.

Intel 520 240GB SSD Review reported at 08:19 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
The only downside to the bunch of advantages is that Intel’s SSD 520 costs more than average SandForce-based SSDs. It’s up to you to decide whether the higher reliability, famous brand name, exclusive firmware and 5-year warranty are worth the extra money they ask for it.

HIS Radeon HD 6930 IceQ X Review reported at 08:18 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
As for the HIS Radeon HD 6930 IceQ X, we don’t like its roaring and rumbling fan with misbalanced impeller. Hopefully, this is just a defect of our sample of the card rather than of the entire series. Otherwise, we can’t recommend this card to users who prefer quiet computers. Apart from the fan, it is a pretty and rather compact device with good cooling, excellent overclocking potential and a price of only $180. It should appeal to thrifty gamers who couldn’t previously afford a Radeon HD 6950 or HD 6970.

Corsair TX550M & TX750M Power Supply Review reported at 08:15 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
The Corsair TX750M is a decent enough offering that brings the option of modular cables to the ever-popular TX range at a competitive price. It's well made and performs well, so it's certainly capable of reliably powering a powerful gaming PC with two high end graphics cards.r
